The Patriot Gala – Supporting Our Military

Reed and Lori Jackson, Matthew and Elizabeth Brown – 2015 Patriot Gala

We’re excited to once again support The Patriot Gala this year, coming up soon on November 5th.

Last year’s event was very patriotic as “it recognizes and values what our men and women give to our country with their selfless sacrifice and it ultimately inspires all in attendance to share some of themselves to support our military. It is an evening filled with laughter, tears and warmth.” (Patriot Military Family Foundation Website)

The highlight of the evening includes honored military speakers and guests and is a tribute to the men and women who have served from our great state of North Carolina.

This event includes a silent and live auction with everything from jewelry, wine and dine, travel, sporting events and more to bid on.

Last year four service dogs were presented to local veterans suffering from PTSD and this year four more will be awarded.

Thinking of Downsizing? Why You Should Consider the Luxury Condo Complex – Rosewood at Providence

By Dee Reid –  Agent Ivester Jackson | Christie’s

Of course you’ve driven by the majestic towers at the corner of Providence Road and Sharon Amity.

Rosewood Condos For Sale

Here’s why it’s such a wonderful move:

  • Rosewood is nestled on a 9 acre estate with over 4.5 acres of preserved wooded land.
  • Location: You are already familiar with the SouthPark area and want to stay where you know the action is without living downtown.
  • Concierge: The concierge service will greet your guests or workers, accept deliveries and packages, hold mail, handle your dry cleaning drop off or pick up, and a number of other services.
  • Security: Rosewood has underground parking that is secure. Once you are in the parking deck, you still need a fob to even get into the elevator bay.  The same security applies to the front of the building.  No one can get into the building after a certain time without passing through security, or being buzzed in.
  • Gym: State of the art gym at your disposal 24/7

    Fitness Center

  • Meeting/Card room: Card game?  Meet with someone?  There is a very nice room that you can use/reserve for your use.
  • Massage room: Have a masseuse that comes to you? There’s a room for that.

Young Elites helps young women prepare for a lifestyle of leadership through events and programming offered to high school girls in the Carolinas and beyond. So far 700 girls have gone through the leadership program by way of a full-scholarship.

According to the Young Elites website, “young women are taught to have VISION, INTENT, and PURPOSEthrough deliberate event scheduling that pushes high school girls in and out of their comfort zones. A unique combination of intellectual, physical, and team building challenges teaches these young women 8 game-changing leadership skills – critical thinking, emotional intelligence, fitness & wellness, identifying strengths & goals, mentorship, professionalism, service, and teamwork.”

The gala is a time to celebrate Young Elites success and it’s the primary source of fundraising to help young women.
